Why Fundraise at the Melbourne and Sydney Tea Festivals?
This sums up why Cloud Nine Teas raises funds for WaterAid Australia at the Melbourne and Sydney Tea Festivals:
Water for tea, tea for water.
As tea drinkers we often talk about the quality of the water we use for our tea.
But imagine if the water you drank was so unsafe that it represented a serious danger to our health. If getting a steady supply of potable water was a daily chore. That’s the reality for millions of people around the world.
WaterAid works directly with governments and businesses around the world to help communities gain lasting access to safe water for drinking, washing and cooking. WaterAid also runs health and education programs in affected communities, so their approach is holistic.
Famous tea-producing nations such as
plus 30 other nations including Australia’s near-neighbour Papua New Guinea, all benefit from WaterAid’s work.
So spare a thought for those who struggle to get enough good water. After all, water is a shared and precious resource. Better still, consider a donation to WaterAid.
On Saturday May 20, the Melbourne Tea Festival will welcome more than 4,000 people to the world of specialty tea. Cloud Nine Teas is really happy to be part of this fabulous event and showcase our wares, work hard and have some fun.
In August of 2016, Sydneysiders and visitors to Sydney also joined Cloud Nine Teas for an enjoyable afternoon at the Sydney Tea Festival. 10% of our proceeds from that day also went directly to WaterAid.
